The restaurant company has seen a ‘continued strong performance’ with system sales increasing 9.9% up to £375.8m, and like-for-like sales, excluding splits, are up 8.8%

Domino’s have revealed that its collection sales increased by 40.3% last quarter, according to it’s Q3 trading statement.

The total orders for the restaurant chain grew 9.5% during this period, which was largely driven by collection orders rising 40.3%. Collection orders for Domino’s are now at 82% of 2019 levels and represent the company’s “most profitable and labour efficient channel”.

Domino’s has also seen a “continued strong performance” with system sales increasing 9.9% up to £375.8m, while like-for-like sales, excluding splits, are up 8.8%.

Additionally, digital sales have increased with Domino’s new app now accounting for 42.1% of system sales, which is up 5.9% compared to its Q3 in 2020.

Domino’s opened five new stores in the quarter, and 18 stores opened year to date from seven different franchisees. The company “remains on target” to open up 30 stores in FY21 and 200 stores in the medium term.

Dominic Paul, chief executive officer, said: “We have built on our strong performance through the pandemic as restrictions have been lifted, with our collections business continuing its recovery and our total order count growing in a profitable and sustainable way.

“Our integrated marketing campaigns have improved our brand strength and awareness levels. We have opened five new stores, seen continued strong sales growth through our new App and completed our planned exit from all directly operated international markets.”

He added: “Our supply chain continues to deliver outstanding results, despite the well-publicised inflationary pressures and challenging labour market, which is testament to the skill and dedication of our teams. 

“While we see these pressures continuing into 2022, our success in managing them to date provides us with confidence that our growth momentum will be sustained. We’re proud to be creating new jobs to support that growth and today are announcing that we are recruiting 8,000 new colleagues across the UK and Ireland.”
